The book of Ann is the 12th FRIOUR project.

Who is Ann? For me she is a real person.
For you she's a mythical femail.

Let's construct together the book of Ann!

How does she feel? How does she thinks? How does she act? Is she a rebel? Is she a mother? Is she the salt of the earth?

Free size and medium. Text and poems are also welcome. Deadline for contributions is 31 December 2011.
All the contributions will be united in a time capsule.
Documentation on this blog.
Unfriendly femail mail art will be banned.

Mail address: The book of Ann, c/o Guido Vermeulen, Thomas Vinçottestreet 81, B-1030 Brussels, Belgium

ANN's name is not Ann



From Jim Santamour, USA
Love this piece!
L let Jim explain himself:
"This is a print of a photogaph my great grand father took in the Philippines around 1900-1910. He was with the US army during its occupation after the Spanish-American war. I don't really know if her name was Ann but I know that missionaries often changed poeples names! My father's mother was an American Indian, who was baptized by French nuns in Québec and the nuns changed her name into a "christian" one"

A bit similar Jim to the story of African Americans whose names came from their slave masters. That's why Malcolm called himself "X", he refused the imposed slave name heritage.
